About Rex

Rex the Blizzard King was a noble, loving, hero dog, whose legacy carries on today. A purebred Samoyed who lived from 1946-1957, he was involved in more than 30 rescues of humans. He was awarded a place of honor in the U.S. Postal Hall of Fame for his work as Lead Sled Dog on a U.S. mail run, became a favorite of John Wayne’s on the set of Island in the Sun, and famously “blazed the trail” to the stranded City of San Francisco passenger train stuck at Yuba Gap near notorious Donner Pass, California in January 1952.

The Story of Rex of White Way, The Blizzard King, The Book by Jim Cheskawich is now available in both soft and hard cover. Also available on Amazon Kindle.
